Why You Need Spinach – The Other Leafy Green Superfood

Yes, I know – you’re probably having flashbacks of your mum trying to get you to eat your vegetables.

But before you tune out, let me give you a glimpse into what spinach does for your body:

  • Helps with hair and skin growth (you might need those…)
  • Detoxes your body since it’s an Anti-Oxidant
  • Lowers your risk for cancer
  • Improves your blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Makes your bones stronger (unlike milk – that’s actually a lie!)
  • Allows you to breathe easier and increase circulation
  • Plus a LOT more…

Okay, so we can all agree that those benefits are definitely something you want. Unless of course, you aren’t very into how your hair, skin or body looks…

So, how is this all possible considering spinach appears to be nothing more than a green leaf just like any other?

Firstly – Spinach contains an antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid. Now as you probably guessed, it helps detox your body naturally. But it is also used by diabetics to manage their disease. Why? Because Spinach naturally increases insulin sensitivity and reduces stress!

Spinach contains an anti-oxidant alpha-lipoic acid.

Thanks to its impressive amounts of Vitamin A (which helps keep your hair and skin healthy), Vitamin K (important for bone health) and Potassium (key for lowering blood pressure).

Best of all, it’s low in calories which means it will fill you up and keep you healthy without increasing your waistline.

The real challenge for Spinach comes when you try to think of ways to eat spinach. It may be possible to just wash it off and stuff it down your throat, but you’re not going to want to keep doing that for long (or at all)…

But when mixed with the right ingredients and enriched with complementary flavours, Spinach becomes a nutrient bomb that also tastes incredible!
